client certificate subject passed to the proxy backed server
« on: April 16, 2015, 04:15:04 am »
Hello all

we've set up a client certificate authentication for a pass-through proxy configuration. ( http://www.juniperforum.com/index.php?topic=5012.msg20053#msg20053 ). The authentication works. What we cannot see is an option to pass the client certificate information to the backed server. Other proxy system such as BIGIP F5 LTM, Apache httpd, nginx, .. have an option to include a custom HTTP header with the certificate subject. We'd like to set up something similar. 

Reading other posts ( http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/en_US/sa8.0/topics/topic-map/security-access-control-client-auth-certificates-using.html ) it may not be even possible, but hopefully I am wrong.

Best regards
